Whistler author gets inspired by what might lurk beneath snow banks for debut book
It’s hard to deny an element of fate in the story of how Rebecca Wood Barrett’s debut book came to be published.
The Whistler author pitched her first book to a publisher at the Whistler Writers Festival (for which she serves as festival manager) two-and-a-half years ago. While they took a pass that time around, out of the blue Wood Barrett heard from them again. “Have you got anything else?” she recalls them asking.
“I was like, ‘As a matter of fact, I just finished a book. I’ll send it to you.’”
